The Boston Celtics have been among the most active teams in the NBA with the trade deadline a little more than a month away. The buzzer doesn’t sound until Feb. 19, but the Celtics haven’t wasted any time in getting deals done.
Apparently, the Celtics aren’t done making deals with Robinson potentially headed to Boston. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Jameer Nelson will be sent to Denver in exchange for Robinson:

Celtics GM Danny Ainge pulled the trigger on the biggest trade so far this season a few weeks ago by sending superstar Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks. Earlier this week, Boston got involved in a three-way trade which ultimately sent Jeff Green to the Memphis Grizzlies.
Robinson had a short stint with the Celtics after being traded to Boston by the New York Knicks back in 2009. Nelson was dealt to the Celtics by the Mavericks in the blockbuster deal for Rondo.
In 33 games this season with the Nuggets, Robinson is averaging 5.8 points and 2.3 assists in 14.1 minutes per game.[divide]
